Title: Experimental and theoretical studies of the reactions of ground-state sulfur atoms with hydrogen and deuterium

Abstract

The gas-phase kinetics of S( 3P) atoms with H 2 and D 2 have been studied via the laser flash photolysis—resonance fluorescence technique. S atoms were generated by pulsed photolysis of CS 2 at 193 nm and monitored by time-resolved fluorescence at 181 nm. The rate coefficients for H 2 ( k 1) and D 2 ( k 2), respectively, are summarized as k 1(600-1110 K) = 3.0 × 10 –9 exp(– 1.317×10 5–2.703×10 7K/ T/ 8.314 T/K ) cm 3 molecule –1 s –1 and k 2(770-1110 K) = 2.2 × 10 –14 ( T/298 K) 3.55 exp(–5420 K/T) cm 3 molecule –1 s –1. Error limits are discussed in the text. The rate coefficients for formation of SH(SD) + H(D) on a newly developed triplet potential energy surface were characterized via ring polymer molecular dynamics and canonical variational transition-state theory. Furthermore there is excellent agreement above about 1000 K between theory and experiment. At lower temperatures, the experimental rate coefficient is substantially larger than the results computed for the adiabatic reaction, suggesting a significant role for intersystem crossing to the singlet potential energy surface at lower temperatures.
